    +1. Get them all a nice Hober, but not the same tie. The same color is fine, but mix it up.....

    I just received two spectacular pocket squares from David, my first from his company, but not my last. The fabric and sewing are amazing. I am a fan.

    This thread about an overpriced TF tie prompted me to post my Hober wedding tie that I got for much much less.

    It's listed under the Wedding Tie section on Hober's web-site.

    David, if you ever did offer knits, I think there is a color in which you could do a brisk business. The dark chocolate of your grenadine finas is very hard to find in knit ties. But it seems like a perfect color for a knit tie. It would compliment greenish tweed coats, B&W herringbone coats, B&W glen plaid coats, cream coats, and light blue coats. It would nicely dress down a navy blazer or a mid or light gray suit: a great sunny day look for spring or autumn. I have been searching for this color for a while, but nobody seems to offer it in a solid: Paul Stuart, J. Press, Lands' End, Kent Wang, Ben Silver, Drake's, K. J. Beckett. Beckett comes close, but his solid brown seems to have a bright orangey cast which IMO makes it a bit less versatile than the darker reddish cast of your dark chocolate fina. Drake's version also comes close.

    I am enjoying this thread, and I am a Hober addict now. Like a couple others have done earlier, I will mail one of the following tie swatch sets to the first one who pms me and agrees to then send it on as well: (one set per person)

    - grenadine garza grossa (gone)
    - cashmere black warp (gone)
    - linen (gone)

    Just waiting on an order for 2 Macclesfield prints. Got one in standard 3-fold, and the other in lined 6-fold for comparison purposes. Any experience either way? Recommendations?
